OONI Community Interviews: Tawanda Mugari

Today we are excited to publish an interview with Tawanda Mugari, Co-Founder & Geek in Chief of Digital Society of Africa (DSA). Through our partnership with DSA, we have had the opportunity to collaborate on research and training activities across southern Africa. Tawanda is a digital security expert, community leader and trainer who has been part of the OONI community for years. Watch Tawanda’s interview to learn more about his important work!

Digital Society of Africa (DSA) works to strengthen the resilience and ability of frontline activists, human rights defenders and other at-risk groups in six countries: Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Eswatini and South Africa. DSA leads the network of technologists and digital consultants, as well as OONI Probe users in these countries and supports OONI with measuring and investigating internet censorship in southern Africa.

Each year DSA hosts ConnectCon, an event which brings together organizations and individuals from 6 southern African countries to discuss regional challenges, share experiences and knowledge, and build capacity for further collaboration.
